While regulations and policy discussions often focus on large buildings, much of New York City’s building stock is made up of mid-size commercial and residential buildings, both of which have a unique set of needs when it comes to electrification and decarbonization. This year’s keynote will focus on how to put the right tools and resources in the hands of building owners and contractors, enabling them to be real drivers of change in the market.
- Recognize the impact of retrofitting mid-size buildings on electrification and GHG reduction targets.
- Describe the business constraints of operating mid-size buildings (as owners) and renovating them (as contractors).
- Compare the potential benefits of new service delivery models designed for the middle market.
- Advocate for a focus on the role of MWBE businesses in managing and renovating mid-size buildings.
